Donald Trump gets trolled for counting money before donating to church
US President Donald Trump recently attended a service at the International Church of Las Vegas before the final presidential debate. But, he has been grabbing eyeballs for a photo from the event on social media.
During the indoor event, Trump was seen once again without a mask. Though US President Trump rarely goes to church, he has popularity among evangelical Christians for his opposition to abortion and for appointing conservative judges.
In the viral picture, Trump who visited to worship with a few White House staffers including Hope Hicks and Kayleigh McEnany, was seen counting money before putting in the donation bucked marked “Change 4 Change”.
His awkward gesture was captured by Reuters photographer Carlos Barria. Trump who was in Nevada on a campaign trip for the Presidential election stated that he narrowly lost to Democrats in 2016, attended the mass service before a campaign event in Carson City.

Pastor Paul Marc Goulet of the nondenominational International Church of Las Vegas applauded Trump ‘as he just came to church’, the Las Vegas Review reported.
“This is your third time here, that means you’re a church member. I don’t care what anybody says. I love my president,” Goulet added.
Trump also heard saying that it was ‘a great honor’ to attend the service. POTUS also added, “I love going to churches” and urging parishioners to “get out there on November 3 or sooner” to vote.
Meanwhile, Trump is receiving flak on social media for counting money before donating it to church.
